It feels damn good when something comes over email and then manifests itself into the physical realm. Pushing another person to dig deeper, look further, and work harder is…well it is hard. In the case of Bryant Davis this was easy and the output….inspiring. Bryant works in a variety of mediums and has some stellar projects posted on his website. Here Bryant takes a simplified route cutting out the computer age and going right to the black obelisk of the 80s childhood…the television. He modified the television to accept incoming audio signals, working in his classic slightly harsh but awakening style for the audio source. Mr. Davis lets it burn slow in good fashion here…..please enjoy the limited fidelity of these experiments….find your bearings inside the tube….they call on you to push yourself further too!
About Bryant Davis and this project….
I work with both experimental video and audio. I have also been working on visualizing sound. For this project I modified a cathode ray tube television so that incoming audio signals are rendered to the screen by the electron beam as an image
